The story of Nostell Priory begins in the early years of the twelfth century with a community of hermits living and praying together in a wood near Pontefract. This study examines the transformation of this small community into one of the richest Augustinian priories in the north of England. It examines the role of an early supporter, Robert de Lacy, and the contribution of Henry I and his court, after Robert's banishment from England c. 1114. In addition to looking at the establishment of the house in terms of endowments, it examines the spiritual role of archbishop Thurstan in the transition from eremitical community to Augustinian monastery.
